Slow Techno : Basement Jaxx - Raw S#it

basement jaxx raw s#it record centreYes, you did read that title correctly! A Basement Jaxx track on - what is going on?

Well, these two legends are the market leaders of house music and are a pair of mighty fine producers but on this occasion their dark 'n' dirty side comes to the fore. Many will argue that this is dirty house music and they would be right. However, this has a rawness and energy that is truly in the spirit of techno. It is great to see a track like this come out of the house scene and work so well in a slow techno context.

'Raw S#it' was released all the way back in 1997 on the great Atlantic Jaxx label. You will find this hidden away on the b-side of the 'Urban Haze' EP. The Jaxx have done a few other dirty distorted numbers during their time - seek them out!
